Beautifully lighted entryways welcome your guests and make their passage into your home safer.
Believe it or not, October is almost over. You’re probably putting the finishing touches on the kid’s costumes, stocking up on candy, and hanging spider webs from the front porch rather than sweeping them away. With the holidays upon us, now is a great time to assess your outdoor lighting and make some improvements. After all, nothing is more welcoming than a brightly shining, warm home, and you certainly want your holiday guests to feel welcome. So be sure to pay careful attention to the following areas.
Entryway & Paths
Your entryway is the first place your guests will experience your hospitality. The area should be magnetic, drawing your guests into your home. But no matter how much time you spend on the wreath or poinsettia and figure arrangements, your guests won’t see any of it in the shadows. Entryway lighting creates a warm, safe area in the midst of the cold dark. Additionally, entryway and path lighting provides clear visibility for your guests and reduces their risk of falls. This is especially important when the grandparents arrive bearing gifts.
Driveway lighting helps your guests find your home and navigate the parking situation safely. It helps prevent bump ups when you have multiple guests and can keep cars out of the flowers or landscaping along the drive. Remember that driveway lighting shouldn’t look like an airport runway. That scene is unappealing, but with professional driveway lighting, your guests can have great visibility that creates an enchanting mood.
Be sure your new outdoor living spaces are well illuminated. Though it may be chilly, someone is bound to want to step outside for fresh air.
Outdoor Living Space Additions
Did you make an outdoor living space addition this fall or summer? Perhaps it was a fire pit area or new flowerbeds. Whatever your changes may have been, you should highlight them. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Kansas City has a wide range of fixtures and years of experience we can utilize to create the perfect look for these areas.
Landscape lighting provides guests with a beautiful sense of your property before they even pull into the drive. Be sure that your landscape lighting is up-to-date and highlighting all of you best landscape features. Such lighting inspires a festive mood in your guests and sets a merry tone for your gathering to welcoming them in.
